It’s over! Rennes wins and knocks OM out of second place
L’OM n’est plus deuxième à l’issue de cette 37e journée de Ligue 1. Les Marseillais ont été complètement impuissants face à des Rennais très entreprenants qui reprennent espoir dans la course à la Ligue des champions avant la dernière journée du Championnat la next week.
martin terrier comes out
The man of this Rennes-OM Martin Terrier makes way for Lesley Ugochukwu.
five minutes more
In this meeting between Rennes and OM, five minutes of additional time will be played.
Break on the Rennes side
Three Rennes players fall. Himari Traoré gets up, Martin Terrier seems to be suffering just like Lovro Majer. For now, the three players remain on the pitch.
OM finally dangerous
After a good overflow on the right, Boubacar Kamara took advantage of outside the area but his shot was deflected by Santamaria and he went for a corner.
Let’s assign not far from being able to score
In an overflow full of envy from Traoré, the Rennes captain crosses towards Assignon who narrowly misses the ball when he was only a few meters from Mandanda.
New changes for Rennes
Bruno Genesio makes three changes. Laborde is replaced by Guirassy, Jonas Martin replaces Flavien Tait and Meling comes into play in place of Truffert.
Benjamin Bourigeaud leaves
Rennes’ first striker, Benjamin Bourigeaud, gave way to a standing ovation from Roazhon Park. Lorenz Assignon replaces him.
Second change for OM
Pape Gueye gives up his position as soon as he receives a yellow card. It is the Spanish side Pol Lirola who replaces him.
Phenomenal stop from Mandanda
What an exceptional save from Mandanda who scored a sublime starter in a point-blank attempt from Lovro Majer who already saw himself scoring a brace.
Pape Gueye is warned
Benoit Bastien is forced to crack down on Pape Gueye, who makes a more than limited intervention on Bourigeaud.
Bamba Dieng misses his face to face
Without a doubt, it was Marseille’s biggest chance in this match. Bamba Dieng dives deep and tries to eliminate Gomis but the Rennes goalkeeper intervenes without fail at the Senegalese’s feet.
OM hasn’t scored yet
It is quite rare to be stressed. OM still hasn’t shot on goal in this game after almost 70 minutes of play.
Laborde close to scoring an exceptional goal
Martin Terrier crosses towards Gaëtan Laborde who tries an acrobatic turn. The former Montpellier striker narrowly misses the ball.
Caleta-Car takes a yellow
Marseille’s Croatian defender comes out angry and kicks the corner from the middle of the Marseille field. Benoit Bastien gives him a yellow card for this gesture.
Bamba Dieng returns
First change for Jorge Sampaoli and OM. Senegalese striker Bamba Dieng replaces Duje Caleta-Car for a resolutely attacking replacement.
OM moved up to third
With this setback, OM fell to third place in favor of Monaco, who at the same time were leading against Brest. The Marseillais only have 30 minutes left to be masters of their destiny on the last day.
Game time is coming
As the hour of play approaches in this match, Rennais is still leading on the scoreboard and is not worried about the Marseilles who are too timid in their attacks.
Martin Terrier makes a big game
From the beginning of the match, Martin Terrier is, without a doubt, the best player of the match. Beyond his two assists, the former Strasbourg player is omnipresent and very fair in his choices.
The center of Ünder is missed
Cengiz Ünder tries to find Gerson at the far post but the Turkish center goes too far and goes wide of the goal.
omg it’s a little better
Since he came back from the locker room, OM seems better than during the first period. The Olympians no longer have the ball, but the Rennais also let their opponents come.
Here we go again!
The 22 actors returned to the grass of Roazhon Park. The Marseilles, led, must overcome the score in a difficult game for them.
End of first period!
Benoit Bastien ends this first act of this Rennes-OM. The Bretons give, for the moment, a football lesson to the Marseillais and take the lead 2-0.
Bamba Dieng left for warm-up
Jorge Sampaoli could make changes very quickly in this match. The Senegalese striker, Bamba Dieng, has already left for the warm-up.
Bourigeaud misses the double
This action was eerily similar to the one that led to Rennes’ first goal, but this time Bourigeaud lacked precision in the last gesture. An offside position was then called.
Great atmosphere at Roazhon Park
Inevitably, this second goal got the crowd at Roazhon Park even more excited. The atmosphere is great in Brittany.
Majer doubles Rennes’ lead
Rennes takes a break! Martin Terrier continues to command and offers a goal to Lovro Majer. OM is overwhelmed!
What an opportunity for Rennes
After an error by Luan Peres in the Marseille area, Benjamin Bourigeaud took advantage of the occasion but his shot grazed the Mandanda post after being deflected by Caleta-Car.
The smoke bombs are out
The smoke is gradually produced in the stadium after the lighting of several smoke bombs in the stands of Roazhon Park.
Tait is warned
This time, Flavien Tait will not escape. The Rennes midfielder brings down Pape Gueye and Benoit Bastien shows him a yellow card. Jorge Sampaoli also receives it for too many repeated challenges.
Gerson too short
Great opportunity for OM and Gerson. Mattéo Guendouzi crossed to the far post towards the Brazilian. The latter launches and tries to recover the ball but misses a few centimeters to score.
Final warning for Tait
After a serious foul by Flavien Tait on Kamara, Benoit Bastien told the Rennes midfielder he would crack down on the next foul.
Gerson’s head fails
The Brazilian midfielder projects himself into the Rennes area and receives a cross from the Under. But Gerson’s head fails on Alfred Gomis’ goal.
Rennes is playing very well
The Rennais manage to play a more than enjoyable game and dominate, for the moment, this match even after the advantage they took less than ten minutes ago.
Ronier fails to recover well
Great opportunity for Valentin Rongier who is alone in the Rennes penalty area but lacks precision to properly recover the ball given deep by Harit.
Terrier strike ends in Mandanda’s gloves
The premiere has not yet fully awakened the Olympians who suffer, as a result of the goal, a goal by Martin Terrier. Steve Mandanda is attentive and lies down on the ball.
Benjamin Bourigeaud overturns Roazhon Park
Rennes opened the scoring on a perfectly executed quick action from Martin Terrier launched deep. The former Lyonnais then finds Bourigeaud at the far post who fools Mandanda with his flat foot.
Rennes does not take advantage of the backlash well
Rennais could have been dangerous for the first time in this match but Flavien Tait failed to improve Martin Terrier’s recovery.
Sampaoli is very nervous
On the edge of the field, Jorge Sampaoli is already very tense and regularly attacks the fourth official who asks him to calm down.
omari gets up
Warmed up Omari gets up after a good minute on the ground and seems to be complaining about his shoulder.
Omari stays on the ground
After a tough duel with Amine Harit, the young Rennes defender Omari remains on the ground and asks for the intervention of the caretakers.
Already a large laundry in Rennes
First minute and first lesson with the great pressure from Rennes. The Bretons play high and put a lot of pressure on the Marseilles.
Let’s go to Roazhon Park
The starting signal is fired for this matchday 37 game of Ligue 1! OM heads to Rennes for a match with a European flavor. Olympians can qualify for the next Champions League this Saturday night.
Start of hostilities in fifteen minutes
The tension and atmosphere are rising in Roazhon Park. In fifteen minutes, the starting signal will be fired for this extremely important match on matchday 37 of Ligue 1.
Marseille can match a 2009 record
If OM win in Brittany on Saturday night, the Olympians will equal a record for points scored away from home in a season dating back to the 2008/2009 financial year.
Rennes to continue its momentum?
Bruno Genesio’s players have been formidable in efficiency during various home games and have scored at least two on each of their last eight receptions.
The point in the ranking
Before this big scare, a quick look at the standings is necessary to fully understand what’s at stake in this meeting. OM, 2nd, is three points ahead of 3rd Monaco and six points ahead of Rennes, 5th. Therefore, the Olympians could officially qualify for the next Champions League tonight.
